Official press release:

One of 2021’s hottest breakout bands, Seattle’s five-piece AVOID, has dropped their latest single and music video My World. Not only that, but the band has also announced their forthcoming new album Cult Mentality due for release on Friday, October 14 (via Thriller Records). Speaking on today’s release, vocalist Benny Scholl commented:

“We’re so stoked to share this track with y’all. From the second we started writing it this has been one we’ve been excited about it. It’s a song to turn up loud and say ‘fuck it’ to anything getting you down. In my humble opinion, it also shows off every side of the band and gives you a taste of a little bit of everything that’s coming with future releases. Blast this shit, and welcome to My World.”

Prior to the news, AVOID previously shared “COWABUNGA” and “Split (Kill It)” which together have totaled over 237,000 streams on Spotify alone and over 108,000 views on YouTube. Watch the music video for “My World” below, stream the track here, and be sure to stay tuned for more AVOID news coming soon.
